People always ask me how often my children eat sweets.
I reply: “every day!” Of course it is worth mentioning they are allowed to put a sweet candy or a piece of a pie in their mouth only once a day, but, anyway, it happens regularly.
Sweets every day, is it bad? Not for us, because any sweet dishes on my family’s table are prepared by me, they are served by me, and, therefore, they represent, as it should be, healthy and conscious joy, not health experiments or a compromise of conscience.
Today we are making candies, which remind me of the Russian sweets called “Homeland”.
Moderately sweet, tasty, and very satiating.
The base consists of just a few ingredients: oats, walnuts, and raisins.
Nothing extra! For a gluten-free option, you can use gluten-free oats, which can easily be purchased on the internet. These candies store well in the freezer and are loved by children and adults.
Ready? Set? Let’s go cooking!
We will need: (15-16 pieces)
1 cup oats (250 ml)
1 cup walnuts
3/4 cups dark raisins
1-2 Tbsp. almond or regular milk
Any melted chocolate at your discretion
Grind the nuts and oats.
Add raisins. Introduce the milk gradually.
Shape the candy from the mix.
Melt the chocolate. I use chocolate chips that I mix with a little milk.
Remember, you can use absolutely any chocolate: make your own or use, for example, one of my sweet chocolate recipes.
Cover the frozen sweets with chocolate. The chocolate will solidify very rapidly. Be quick!
Done! Delicious and tasty again! Everyone in your family will be pleased with these sweets!
Bon appétit everyone!
